Rebecca Minkoff Canary Yellow Swing Bag, Jeanswest Maternity Tops and Denim Shorts

Baby has arrived, but I've got a few more pregnancy outfits scheduled to share on the blog. It gives me a chance to enjoy the newborn cuddles and adjust to life with two under 2!



Decided to carry my Rebecca Minkoff swing bag for a while, as I love the bright yellow colour. It looks especially good with denim, another excuse to wear my maternity denim shorts.

What I wore:

Away From Blue | Autumn 38 weeks pregnant outfit printed kimono maternity shorts singlet RM Swing bag

AwayFromTheBlue | Rebecca Minkoff Swing bag in canary yellow silver black bracelet stack
Jacket:  Somedays Lovin' Yakuza print kimono (on sale!)
Necklace: Happiness Boutique turquoise and coral pendant necklace (C/O)
TankJeanswest maternity tank in black
ShortsJeanswest Georgie maternity boyfriend shorts (available in non-maternity also)
Shoesslim gold Havaianas
Bracelets: the usual plus old beaded black bracelet stack
BagRebecca Minkoff Swing bag in canary yellow

Why I wore it:

When I got this kimono, I knew that the yellow Rebecca Minkoff swing bag would look great with it, with the yellow in the print! It's taken me a little while to get around to pairing them together though.

Had quite a quiet day, doing the daycare drop off / pickup and attending my OB appointment in the morning. Made some progress on pre-scheduling blog posts in the afternoon too. I want to have a few banked up as I'm not sure how long it will take me to get back into a little routine with blogging when I have a newborn and a toddler.


Last worn: Somedays Lovin' kimono, black maternity tank, Jeanswest boyfriend denim maternity shorts, gold Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff swing bag.

Other ways to wearSomedays Lovin' kimono and a maxi skirt, black maternity tank with blue and purple, boyfriend denim maternity shorts with green and laceRebecca Minkoff swing bag and skinny jeans.

ShortsJeanswest maternity rolled up shorts
Shoesslim gold Havaianas
BagRebecca Minkoff Swing bag in canary yellow

Why I wore it:

When I was thinking of another outfit this yellow bag would look good with, I thought about this green tee. While I liked the combination, I thought it was missing a little something so I added the printed scarf. The scarf has some yellow running through it too so it was an easy choice.

We spent the morning getting (or trying to get) the final few things for baby. Was a little shocked to find that our local baby store we bought almost everything from for toddler T had closed down! The store that took its place didn't have the same range which was a shame. At 38 weeks, I'm ordering a few baby things online and just hoping they show up in time...

  15. And how are you adjusting??? I bet you're loving your new bundle to pieces!! What children do you have? Can you do a "this is my family" post? Lol! I've only been reading your blog for a bit...so I don't know much.

    Do you think we all need to do that? Check in every so often? Because our readers are so dynamic!

    Thanks for the advice on my blog post from Friday. I really appreciate your input!!

  16. Love the bag. Gorgeous color and great details, even if the chain is a bit of a hassle. I've been eyeing up an all yellow bag in a local shop for a couple of days now, maybe it will be part of my 8 pieces, even tho I didn't want to buy another bag haha.

    Also love the mint top in combination with it and the paisley scarf. Great color combination.

    Hope life with 2 under 2 is treating you well and you all have a great week :)

  19. I hope you and the baby are doing good! I don't think I've ever had a yellow bag, this colour doesn't suit me at all :( You can fit a lot in this bag, also having a few compartments comes handy. Shame with the chain strap, however like you said it is pretty secure ha ha :)
